Happy Monday! This week we’re featuring local business owner, Lexi Diyeso. Lexi started Hazel Twenty in 2014 as a mobile clothing boutique in Asheville, and has just recently opened the doors to a brick and mortar location this past May! You can find her new shop on the corner of Patton and Lexington at 16 Patton Avenue. The inspiration for the name, Hazel Twenty, came from two things: Hazel, the name of her adorable Great Dane, and Twenty, her number as a collegiate soccer player at the University of South Carolina. Lexi loves being a member of Asheville’s tight knit local community and especially enjoys being a part of the downtown scene.
Hazel Twenty’s mission is to empower women to feel good about themselves through clothing and accessories that not only fit well, but wear well. In her store, she features women's clothing and accessories, as well as home goods and shoes. Make sure to stop by and get your groove on every Friday from 4-9pm for DJ Fridays and visit their website here to learn more.
